Congratulations toAlexandra Sundermann (G3) and Lillian Juttukonda (M3), who were two of only 100 doctoral students in the U.S. and Canada selected to receive a $15,000 P.E.O. Scholar Award (PSA)! The PSAs were established in 1991 to provide substantial merit-based awards for women pursuing a doctoral-level degree. Scholar Awards recipients are a select group of women chosen for their high level of academic achievement and their potential for having a positive impact on society.
Congratulations to Kasia Ludwik!Cancer Research recently accepted Kasia’s paper and excitingly they have chosen an image that she provided for the cover. Even better, this issue is the one that is distributed at the annual meeting for the American Association for Cancer Research, as Cancer Research is a journal of the society. There are ~18,000 people at this meeting! Notably, Kasia is last year's Colowick award recipient. To the right, enjoy the winning image, which is a serial section of an ER+ breast cancer.

Special Announcement: H. EARL RULEY is RETIRING...
...LET'S send our colleague/mentor/educator off in style!
Professor Earl Ruley has been a member of the VU/VUMC faculty since 1992 (For a blast from the past CLICK HERE.)This July will mark his last year as active faculty, as he has decided to retire and spend time with his new grandchild. We would like to show Earl how much he has contributed as a fellow colleague, friend, instigator of vigorous discussion (you all know that you have had at least one of those with Earl..) and educator. Borden is in charge of the upcoming festivities to honor Earl.
First thing we need from you is to hear from Fellow Faculty, Alumni and Current Students:
We would like to invite you to send any comments, pictures, funny anecdotes that you have from your time with him, along with simply your well wishes for his new adventures ahead. We will be compiling them into a memory book for him to take into his new chapter of life. He would enjoy hearing what you are doing now (as would we!) Please send your comments to email@example.com by June 1st.
